T-Mobile added 8.3 million customers in 2014

T-Mobile Uncarrier

T-Mobile has spent the last two years revamping itself and becoming the “Uncarrier”. The approach seems to be working, as T-Mobile added 8.3 million new customers in 2014, its largest annual addition ever. In Q4 alone, T-Mobile added 2.1 million new customers, making it the 7th consecutive quarter to add more than 1 million new customers. When you look at it in perspective, that’s a pretty staggering number for a carrier that was on the verge of shutting down just a couple of years ago.

T-Mobile also says that it now covers over 265 million customers with its 4G LTE network, and that number will only continue to grow throughout 2015 as T-Mobile converts even more of its 2G network to LTE. All in all, T-Mobile seems to in a great place and continues to grow. We’ll have to wait and see the financials, but in terms of customer base, T-Mobile continues to expand.

Did you switch to T-Mobile last year? Sound off in the comments!

    Yup.. and the switch was the best.. Was with Sprint earlier and although not terrible but T-mobile is far better in service compared to sprint..

  • Timokins

    I switched to T-Mobile in October last year from my Verizon had grandfather unlimited plan but was fed up with not being able to upgrade.

  • Siggy Tee

    I switched over 4 lines from Big Red Verizon Wireless and while I am compromising on coverage, very happy since I am currently overseas while typing this comment and have Unlimited Global data & SMS service. My VZW phone would have been dead as soon as I left the airport in the USA. Hope coverage keeps improving.

    I just switched from Verizon for a wide range of reasons. Mostly Verizon is the big evil corporation everyone thinks it is. Capping data, silly plans, god awful customer service, no wifi calling, can’t get a decent upgrade to latest version of Android even on a Nexus device, on and on. I vote with my wallet. Hello T-Mobile.

  • Alan

    I switched 5 lines and got my brother to switch 3 lines. We love talking in HD!

  • carly faulkes was fired

    yeah but they lost 10 million customers because of zero coverage. T-Mobile, the uncoverage carrier.

    I’ve switched since before last year from VZW, and couldn’t be happier. As an Android fan, it just made sense to get out of the abusive VZW relationship (former Galaxy Nexus user, lol).

    I also convinced a number of others, and they’re all happy. Coverage with VZ was good, but we spend the majority of our time in the same cities we work, so the jump to T-Mo made absolute sense.
